Sailing the Lagoon 380 on Lake Izabal (Guatemala)

September 23, 2019


Welcome aboard Atlantis and I continue
to sail and this time as crew I have my son Frederick who visited me and so we
sailed on the lake Izabal in Guatemala and what started as a very smooth sail
well ended with 25 knots of winds when we were approximately in the middle of
of the lake. I wanted to anchor and find some shelter in a little bay but, well it
was not deep enough I didn’t want to take the risk, so we came back we decided
to come back the same day and we were heading straight into the wind tacking
We were running out of time fishermen here they put the nets at
around 5:00 p.m. and it’s quite dangerous to sail at night, so I decided to motor back and we arrived well just before sunset
back in the Rio Dulce River so nice sail we tested the boat under quite nice
conditions a little bit heavier weather and you will see this in the video, so
enjoy and thanks again for watching but
